Kolkata: Confident that her party would emerge as the “third largest” after Lok Sabha elections, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee today did not rule out a TMC-led government at the Centre while dismissing the possibility of supporting BJP and Congress.
“Our party will emerge as the third largest party after the Lok Sabha polls. Electoral reform will be our first priority if a TMC-led government is formed at the Centre,” she said while releasing two party manifestos for the state and for the nation.
Banerjee said, “We stand at the crossroads of history, when the nation is demanding a political change and governance.”
Stating that both Congress and BJP had lost credibility, she said, “Corruption has been rampant in the UPA-2 government, while BJP has been repeatedly held responsible for riots and communal strife.”
TMC believes that an independent, honest and grassroot based federal front would serve the diverse aspirations of a united India, the West Bengal chief minister said.
